Khwanjai’s Top Tips:
If you want to change this recipe from chicken, to pork or prawns, it’s as simple as swapping the ingredients, heck you could even try beef if you like. Here’s a useful link to our Preparing Prawns Thai Style Video (opens new window)

If you prefer things a little more spicy, slice a few (2 or 3) chillies and add with the spring onions. If your dining companion doesn’t like so much spice, don’t slice them until they’re on your plate and it’s easy for your companion to pick them out.

If you like REALLY spicy slice the chillies up finely and add with the garlic, but you can easily mask the more subtle flavours.

Note how Khwanjai adds the egg to the sides of the wok, this is to stop it mixing with the gravy and forming a brown sludge. It still soaks up a lot of the gravy as you will see but remains recognisable as egg. She flips it only when it has firmed up a bit also this way the spring onions get minimal cooking keeping them crisp

This is the full video with only about 5 seconds of cooking edited out and the sun was going in and out all day so lighting is a tiny bit up and down
